The largest indoor snow park in the world has opened in the Gulf Emirate of Dubai.
Built on what was previously desert sand, the slopes will be covered with manufactured snow all year round.
The centre has green, blue, red and black runs, chairlifts and snow patrols, like any other ski resort.
The area under snow is the equivalent of three football fields, with runs built inside a giant, slanting metal tube around 25 floors high.
